Seg. 1: Title IX + Transgender Students | Seg. 2: A People's History

Segment 1: How Title IX applies to transgender students.

With the background of a couple of court cases currently in progress, a KU law professor has created a guide for using Title IX to protect transgender students from discrimination in schools. 

  • Kyle Velte, associate professor of law, The University of Kansas

Segment 2, beginning at 27:00: Season 1, Episode 4, A People's History of Kansas City.

We continue sharing installments of this new podcast from KCUR exploring the everyday heroes, renegades and visionaries who shaped Kansas City. In this episode, we head to the Guadalupe Center. While it's a pillar of the Latino community today, it was originally started to "Americanize" Mexican immigrants who hadn't assimilated.

People don't make cameos in news stories; the human story is the story, with characters affected by news events, not defined by them. As a columnist and podcaster, I want to acknowledge what it feels like to live through this time in Kansas City, one vantage point at a time. Together, these weekly vignettes form a collage of daily life in Kansas City as it changes in some ways, and stubbornly resists change in others.
